Help I am looking for some advice, I started the long haul of transfering all of my 8MM video to a digital date storage base. During the transfers on some tapes I noticed some sound dropouts that make the video footage unwatchable. My footage was shot between 1987 and 2004. I am using the original camera that filmed most of the footage from 1991>2004. 3/4 of my footage is of live music, I used a external Sony 909 mic on (my ID on youtube is50174, example of a good tranfer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMWtOZYPcV8)There is no tracking feature on this camera. I am using below
Sony video 8 CCD-TR93 NTSC into a Canopus ADVC 110 into my MACBOOK Pro
Any thoughts would be great
the dropoutsmay be indicative of tracking or tape wear. I would be suprised if you captured all that old footage 100% accurately with the camera.
you can try a different player and hope for the best. They are deterierating tho.
